Man, these two TET threads got me excited. I'm picking it up in Front Royal tomorrow and heading south for the weekend. As far as I can go until Monday morning, then slabbing it home.

Hi Garrett

Same here. Too bad my timing was off. Your Cow Pasture campout sounded fun. I made it home by 7 pm on Saturday after riding through rain and 38 degree temps for hours. I stayed on the couch for the next 2 days !! It was a great trip 3110 miles over all.

Mike

Short video from George Washington Forest. We were on roads like this for hours with nobody around.

It's raining and nasty out today so a good day to get the videos up.

Off the Blue Ridge Parkway there are all these dirt roads. We were just picking and riding.

I got a Nikon D600 for Christmas from my Sweetie and I have been learning as I go. It has full frame 1080P video which I'm trying to learn. Tons of different settings. I figured out after I took this video that I need to turn off the auto focus and use the tripod with the bigger lens.

My machine tells me the last three videos are "private". Is it true or have the Feds been messing with me again?

I think I fixed it. Went to you tube and changed to public. Let me know if it's fixed

Yep-they're workin' now. Brings me right back, in fact.
If it weren't for life getting in the way, I could do that all over again,

Snake

I think your snake you photographed in post #31 was a Rat Snake. Really common throughout the East...

Others have said that too. Identified as a corn snake, which is a type of rat snake. Constrictor.

Latest Video

Here's my latest recap video. This was one of our top days on the dirt.

You can skip ahead a couple of minutes if you don't want to hear the commentary.

Excellent compilation Keith! We did get a little of everything that day-including perfect weather.

Great video Keith

It was great riding with Jim and Keith. I'm a lot slower, ok I'm more of a chicken then them , and they would wait for me to catch up.

I think I wore out my front brakes on this trip and I don't remember seeing Jim's or Keith's brake light that much
